s8 plus text message ringtone for content

Anyone with the S8 plus notice that we don't have the ability to assign text message ringtones to contacts any more? Now all text messages have the same ringtone and I hate that. Does anyone know if this was an oversight by the developers of the official Oreo software? I hate not being able to know who is texting with everyone having the same ringtone. Please do anyone knows or have any knowledge that we will get it back sooooo.

I tried the SMS Pro app but it still would not change what it is set on. It's STUCK on the Screaming Goat and I am about to toss this phone out the window!

your scenario is a tad bit different though. Will is working with you in the other thread correct? at this point you are probably going to have to do a hard reset on the phone.

I was referring to the application named SMS Popup ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.everythingandroid.smspopup&hl=en ) It may help from what I've read.

I got word back in the way of a confirmation that custom, per contact tones cannot be set for SMS/MMS because the way notifications are handled in Oreo.

What can be done?

you can try some of the apps in the play store to see if they might be able to bypass this but more than likely nothing can be done unless google/samsmung fires something back out to switch this ability back.

So I switched over the Android Messages so far so good and I like some of the additional features it has as well. I would recommend everyone give it a try.. 🙂
